Recently I saw a tweet by a lady, “My mediation makes me look young, as if I’ve had Botox done”.  In today’s world where the market only talks about anti aging serums, lotions, chemical treatments and cosmetic surgery; Meditation stands strong with its natural benefits.

Often people ask, ‘Can meditation really get us the eternal youth?’ Today researchers are trying to bring to benefits of meditation to the entire world. According to a recent study on brain imaging, scientists studies vigorously about telomeres. Telomeres are compounds that protect the ends of our chromosomes. In every cell division the telomeres gets shorter. An enzyme telomerase rebuilds telomeres. This enzyme is responsible for reversing the effects of age. After a certain length telomeres cannot replicate and dies.

Researchers have mapped that after meditation the telomerase activity increases considerably. The revelation of this result has been ground breaking as suddenly the world is talking about meditation.

Brain imaging techniques have confirmed how therapeutic meditation is more than just a relaxation retreat. The processes within the brain increases actively. Once the brain becomes active lots of things gets positively benefited like memory, cognition, emotional regulation and learning.

A journal on Neuroscience have clearly stated that people who meditate for nearly five years or more they look 12 to 15 years younger than their biological age. This statement is backed by a study. Deep meditation results in the change of three important hormones; increased DHEA which is the youth hormone, increased melatonin the sleep hormone and decreased cortisol which is the stress hormone. Thus we can say meditation is anti aging and anti stress medication.

Scientific assessment of Meditation

After analysing the reports from the Office of Alternative Medicine of National Institutes of Health, its been found that mediators achieve the following beneficial reactions:

  1. Meditation calms the brain wave activity
  2. Reduced oxidation in our body
  3. Reduction in release of stress hormone

The general medical benefits from meditation are:

  1. Reduced blood pressure, chronic pain and anxiety
  2. Reduction in the levels of cortisone
  3. Cognitive activity increases
  4. Lowering of substance abuse
  5. Post traumatic syndrome improves
  6. Less usage of medical care and hospitalization
